WIP: Kitten Plushie

image

Little Loren is helping me knit. I am knitting a kitten plushie. Because of the variegated yarn I am using, it looks like she is going to be a calico. Little Loren wants to name her Brown Sugar. I think that sounds like the perfect name for her.

I am knitting this project on DPNs. This is not the first time I have attempted to knit this cat. I tried to knit it on circular needles, but I dropped a stitch and I was unable to fix it, so I started over.

There is a small amount of laddering at the beginning, but I didn’t want to start over again. I am kind of a perfectionist about these things. Little Loren says he likes it just the way it is. What a good little helper. What would I do without him?

New Sweatsuit

image

Little Loren got a new outfit. I got him this Paw Patrol sweatsuit at Target. It was on the clearance rack, and it only cost $12.98. I also got him a pack of baby mittens. They aren’t like regular mittens; they are designed to prevent babies from scratching, and they are really small. They are the perfect size for Little Loren’s tiny paws. He likes the pair with little animals on them the best.

The sweatsuit came with a T-shirt, a hooded sweatshirt jacket, and little sweatpants with stripes down the sides. It was a really good deal. Little Loren usually wears size 12 months, but the smallest size they had was 18 months. It is a little big on him, but I just roll up the sleeves and it fits him fine.

Paw Patrol is a cartoon show on Nickelodeon for little kids. The characters are all animals, and the main characters just happen to be dogs. Little Loren doesn’t like dogs. I decided to give the sweatsuit to him anyway because it is a cute show, and it is called Paw Patrol. Little Loren has cute little paws too.
